COMPOUND INTEREST: Interest that's added to a principal at regular intervals such that each subsequent interest calculation is based on the original principal and the added interest. For example, suppose you have a $100 savings account that pays 5 percent interest. Without compound interest, such that your 5 percent interest is paid only at the end of a year, you will have exactly $105 in one year. However, if your interest is compounded each month you end up with $105.12 after a year. The extra 12 cents comes from interest on the interest paid the first month, interest on the interest paid the second month, interest on the interest paid the third month... well I could go on.

ASSUMPTIONS, CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

Classical economics, especially as directed toward macroeconomics, relies on three key assumptions--flexible prices, Say's law, and saving-investment equality. Flexible prices ensure that markets adjust to equilibrium and eliminate shortages and surpluses. Say's law states that supply creates its own demand and means that enough income is generated by production to purchase the resulting production. The saving-investment equality ensures that any income leaked from consumption into saving is replaced by an equal amount of investment. Although of questionable realism, these three assumptions imply that the economy would operate at full employment.

Trading Some Ideas On EXCHANGE RATES

One potential problem with any far and wide ambling tour of the economy is ambling too far or too wide. Such is the case as we find ourselves in the quaint and courteous Republic of Northwest Queoldiola. While we're here, let's take the opportunity to explore the quaint and courteous economy of the Northwest Queoldiola. Our impromptu economic expedition is faced with an immediate roadblock. I have a pocket filled with good old U. S. dollar bills, but the quaint and courteous people of Northwest Queoldiola don't trade their wares for good old U. S. dollar bills. They prefer the quaint and courteous Northwest Queoldiolan currency, the queold. All we need to do is trade my good old U. S. dollar bills for quaint and courteous queolds.
